This Narrow Isthmus, by Rob Shelsky, is an action-packed short story. Set on a planet whose evolution seems to have run totally amok, the crew of a lost star ship liner try to find answers before it's too late. Can they ever colonize this world, make it home for their hundreds of stranded passengers? Or is the place just too savage, to terrible, to deal with? What is the dark secret of this world?
Author Rob Shelsky does a great job of creating a believable setting for his story, This Narrow Isthmus. Having had some science background, I can attest to the fact that this story takes in real considerations with regard to the planet, the ecology, and the way evolution has proceeded there. You care for the crew, experience their fear, disgust, and at times, relief. All I know, is that while reading this story, I just wanted to get the heck of that planet and fast!
This Narrow Isthmus is an intriguing, thought-provoking story of the first order. Mr. Shelsky seems to have a real talent for blending science, good story telling, and a certain darkness, which I love. I highly recommend it to all! Read This Narrow Isthmus and enjoy--if you dare!
